shocker in the senate was the announcement by south carolina republican jim demint. listen to what he told wolf blitzer. >> after this last election, it's apparent that we need to do more as conservatives to convince americans that our ideas and our policies are going to make their lives better. this will give me the opportunity to help take our case to the american people and to translate our policies into real ideas. >> so you think you could be more influential within the conservative movement as the leader of the heritage foundation as opposed to a united states senator? >> there's no question about it. >> maria, to you first. can he really do more for the republican party from outside the senate? >> well, it seems to me that he didn't think he was doing -- that he wasn't really making that much of a difference in the senate. i mean, the republicans are in the minority there. and frankly, he doesn't have a tremendous legislative record. he doesn't have any big legislative accomplishments. and what he is known for is messaging. what he is known for is for being a strong spokesperson. so

. >> alfonso, speaker boehner is already seeing backlash within his own party, jim demint releasing a statement calling the tax revenue proportion of boehner's $800 billion tax hike. so here it is with boehner trying to make the base happy, meanwhile trying to meet the president within these negotiations and rise up to his leadership vision. what else is it that the base doesn't seem to like? if the base was able to rally around the right candidate that they wanted to for president, mitt romney would be worried about this coming up in the next presidential term. >> look, the fact that boehner's been criticized by conservative organizations and other republicans show that he's seriously considering negotiating the white house and we saw the results of the election, we're willing to concede their increases in revenue but to the point of my colleague, we are not in parliamentary democracy but we're not in a monarchy either. we're in a constitutional democracy and the mandate of the people was for both parties to work together. republicans are saying, we're willing to increase revenue. what is the

in the house and the senate are on board. jim demint, republican senator from south carolina. >> this is a time to negotiate with ourselves. we need to invite the president to work with us. his proposal was so outlandish, i don't think we should go back to the table until he puts something there that we can work with. the president has known about this fiscal cliff for over a year. and many of his decisions caused us to be in this position. >> how much of a problem does boehner have with other republicans potentially? >> it's a big problem. it's always been his problem. it's been a problem for the republican party since they started taking that no tax pledge 30 years ago. what is revenue increase? is closing deductions and loopholes a revenue increase? and if so, do you have to oppose that? i think what we see going on in the republican party right now is a fight between the stalwart, no new tax whatever conservatives and those who believe that they have a responsibility to keep the country from going over the fiscal cliff in the short term and in the long-term. and as jessica was pointing out

jim demint is off to run a think tank. let's see what parts he'll be imparting. on economic policy, he believes the stimulus was a mugging, a fraud. his wisdom on human rights, guys shouldn't be allowed to teach. and gender studies, let's just say he was one of the first to stand with todd akin after his legitimate rape comments and it turns out that the party didn't even have a clue even though they pretended to. >> the party which you acknowledged which erupted last week was todd akin's comments which, unfortunately, have made him unelectable. >> he's unelectable, said senator cornyn. only today we learned that the senator's committee quietly gave mr. akin $760,000 to boost his campaign. and then there's mr. on air meltdown rove. >> do you believe that ohio has been settled? >> no, i don't. >> so you're not saying that obama isn't going to win, you're just -- >> i think this is premature. i don't know what the outcome is going to be but we've got to be careful about calling things when you have 991 votes separating the two candidates. >> the polls were wrong, then, and he thinks that

of those conservatives is senator jim demint. listen to what he said. >> republicans should not be conceding that the federal government needs more money, negotiating with ourselves, and treating the president's proposal like it's serious. this is not a time to negotiate with ourselves. we need to invite the president to work with us, his proposal was so outlandish, i don't think we should go back to the table until he puts something there that we can work with. >> reporter: now, brooke, house republican leaders are particularly those in speaker boehner's office are saying this is proof that they have moved away from the traditional republican position, moving towards the white house. so the white house should take that into consideration. but there definitely is an important undercurrent we should explore here, which is the fact that at the end of the day, if there is a deal, i talked to some republicans who say that the speaker really has to be careful to get the majority of a majority of his republican conference in order to make sure that he -- >> a majority of majority.
